I know you are going to have a great week, positivity inspires everything. When you start your week off with negativity that is exactly what you are going to get. Well that is what I told my son this morning…… I mean who wants to wake up early on a Monday morning when you are as exhausted as heck and that internal voice is convincing you you are tired and its better to just stay in bed besides you have nothing to loose. Well you do have a lot to loose especially if you are working towards something in your life. I will happily share that is exactly how I felt this morning when I heard that alarm going off. I went to bed late last night so I did not get the recommended 8 hours of sleep, what with it being fathers day yesterday and all that jazz. I therefore was not happy with that alarm but I had a plan that I had written down yesterday. I was going to wake up, get my son ready for camp, take him to summer school, go to the gym, stop by the coffee shop and work towards my goals. I am so glad to report that I stuck to the plan and here I am working on this blog post and I feel so happy with my achievements. I kicked mediocrity by sticking to my guns and fighting my lazy me voice.Did I loose anything, not really , I actually gained a lot more than I would have lost. Staying in bed would have meant a whole morning wasted. I have been able to work towards certain projects and I even have created the time to write this blog post. How far ahead you get in life is all in your control, you have to have the strength to keep your eyes on your goals, realize each day will be a struggle but the more you start to take small steps the easier it will get. I can now happily tick off 5 things from my to-do list and that gives me a natural high that inspires me to keep working towards more goals. I am trying to lead by example and when my son kept repeating “I am so tired” I asked him to change it around to say “I am so excited” did it work ? not exactly but it’s a start and it also helped me change my mindset for today so that I could focus on the plans I had for my monday. I am excited to report that I have started my Monday the way I want the rest of this week to go, with POSITIVITY. How are you starting your Monday?
